WHITE SOXBristol Rookie
Robert Young certainly knows how to finish with a flourish. The 31st-round pick out of Dartmouth continued his remarkable season-ending push Monday night as Bristol edged Kingsport, 2-1.

Young 4-3 picked up his fourth consecutive victory, tossing six shutout innings. He hasnt given up a run in his last 14 innings and has surrendered only one run in his last 30 13 frames, posting a 0.29 ERA over that stretch.

The Dartmouth grad allowed only one hit, a fourth-inning single to Ray Van Gurp. He issued two walks, one in the fourth prior to the hit and one in the sixth. He pitched out of the jam in the fourth and then picked off Ismael Tijerina in the sixth.

Drew Lee had a pair of hits while Dan Black added a pair of hits and an RBI.
Charlotte AAA
Charlotte overcame a four-run deficit Monday and stunned Durham, 8-4, at Durham Athletic Park.

Alejandro De Aza had four hits, including three doubles, and four RBIs as the Knights scored six runs over the fifth and sixth innings to erase what had been a 4-0 Durham lead. Brent Morel added a double and an RBI while Dayan Viciedo had two hits and an RBI.

Kyle McCulloch, despite allowing four runs one earned in the first two innings, hung around to go six and pick up his second victory.

In other action, Delmarva scratched out an eighth-inning run and edged Kannapolis, 5-4. Tyler Stampones sacrifice fly brought home the winning run as Chase Cooney 0-1 took the loss. Ian Gac had a double and three RBIs for the Intimidators. Great Falls and Ogden were cancelled because of rain.

The trio was acquired in the Bulls' trade with the Minnesota Timberwolves. LaVine is rehabbing from a torn ACL, which cut his strong campaign short last season. Dunn is coming into his second season and was a player Gar/Pax thought highly of in last year's draft. Markkanen is a stretch-four that was drafted out of Arizona with the No. 7 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft.
